Are you feeling thirsty and not wanting to go out, but do feel like some fun at home bartending? Well that's good because here are a few drink recipes that you may find to be just right for the evening (or maybe help you get a clear idea of what you want to make or create).

This drink recipe was something I threw together when bartending at a local restaurant in Goliad. The book we had on cocktails had  a similar recipe, but we lacked the ingredients. So, I took what we had available and created this little number...
